Vicky Soteriou, a woman who arranged for her lover to kill her husband on the day of his 44th birthday celebration, had her appeal against the conviction for attempted murder rejected by Court of Appeal justices.
Soteriou, 46, had been jailed in November 2011 for 12 years with a non-parole period of nine years.
After being married to her husband Chris Soteriou for 18 years and having three children together, Mrs Soteriou arranged for her lover Ari Dimitrakis to stab her husband and slash his throat, on January 2, 2010.
The victim, Chris Soteriou, didn’t know his wife had been having an affair with Dimitrakis, and that she even had his name tattooed on her finger, hidden behind a wedding band, and a letter ‘A’ tattooed on her neck.
Dimitrakis was jailed for seven years with a non-parole period of five years.
